Mojo Mickybo: Three Plays
Three astute, savvy early plays from Owen McCafferty.
Mojo and Mickybo relive the summer of 1970 when they were growing up in Belfast, playing headers, building huts and re-enacting cowboy movies. An unsentimental portrayal of innocence betrayed by communal hatred.
The Waiting List
A monologue about a man under siege in the community where he grew up.

'A deeply affectionate and fiercely clear-eyed portrait of a recently unemployed middle-manager slowly losing his mind' Sunday Tribune
'Mojo Mickybo marries the polished ferocity of Howie the Rookie with the chirpy candour of Disco Pigs... This play is an energising reminder of the fact that all you need for truly magical theatre is a writer inspired by the thought of the stories that can be made on the stage'Scotsman on 'Mojo Mickybo'
'a glorious, vivid little play full of verbal swagger... creates vast emotional ripples... small but lethal'Guardian on 'Mojo Mickybo'
'full of shocking home truths, made palatable by a witty, astute script'Irish News on 'The Waiting List'
